Agalloch Announces New North American Tour Dates

Agalloch has announced a massive North American tour this summer, with support coming from Taurus, which features Stevie Floyd of Dark Castle. The band has also been confirmed to play this year’s Noctis Fest which will be taking place on Sept 28th/29th in Calgary, Alberta. A statement from the band reads as follows:

“This tour will mark the release of our recently recorded EP 'Faustian Echoes' on both LP and CD. We have taken great care in the design of this release. Sometime before the tour we will have both a streaming and digital download option available. However, the LP and CD versions will only be available at the shows during the dates on the tour and will be available via mail order after the tour. We will be adding material (both new and old) to our set list and depending on stage time we anticipate playing between 90-120 minutes. The set will rotate each night.

"We have carefully selected local openers whose music fits the environment of an Agalloch show. Where there are no openers selected, we will play nearly 120 minutes. We are all personal fans of the openers and encourage everyone to show up early to see them. We will have a variety of merchandise for sale including: 2 new shirt designs, our back catalog, 'The Demonstration Archive,' 'Marrow of the Spirit' vinyl, a tour poster by Stevie Floyd, original photographic prints by Veleda Thorsson, and various other odds and ends.”

I didn't review the last Agalloch album. The weird thing is that this is not the first person to tell me they didn't agree with "my" review of the album :)

Don't lie Ty, your anti-Agalloch psionic fingerprints are all over this one!

Latest album wasn't bad, wasn't a huge game changer either, but either way seeing them live would be great.
